The dream of millions of Hot Wheels fans of all ages will become true as the Camaro Hot Wheels Edition arrives at Chevrolet dealerships in early 2013. It’s the first time a full-size, production Hot Wheels car has been offered for sale by any manufacturer. “Millions of us grew up playing with Hot Wheels,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet Marketing. “Offering a special production model of the Camaro Hot Wheels is an opportunity to bring those memories to life, for kids of all ages.”
The Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Edition debuted at the 2012 SEMA Show, in Las Vegas. A special run of the Camaro Hot Wheels Edition will be produced in the first quarter of 2013. The appearance of the Chevy Camaro Hot Wheels Edition echoes the cues that Hot Wheels enthusiasts recognize, including a vibrant, graphics-accented metallic paint scheme and even the red-lined wheels. The result is instantly recognizable as a Hot Wheels. The Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Edition is available in coupe and convertible models – in 2LT (V-6) and 2SS (V-8) trims, blending exterior cues of the high-performance Camaro ZL1 with a Kinetic Blue exterior color and unique graphics.
On the inside, a black leather-trimmed interior is accented with red and black seat stitching with the Hot Wheels logo embroidered on the front seats. The instrument panel and door inserts are black, with the Hot Wheels-style flame decal on each door. Hot Wheels Edition sill plates also distinguish the car, along with Camaro-logo premium floor mats with red edging.
